    sync CPU state upon final domain destruction
    See the code comment being added for why we need this.
    This is being placed here to balance between the desire to prevent
    future similar issues (the risk of which would grow if it was put
    further down the call stack, e.g. in vmx_vcpu_destroy()) and the
    intention to limit the performance impact (otherwise it could also go
    into rcu_do_batch(), paralleling the use in do_tasklet_work()).
